divided than ever. as we have seen from john kerry's visit today, the tensions between the united states and this government, not very cordial. imbued with a lot of tension. a lot coming back from the community of nations they have not really a implemented. i would say that it is all because of a constitution that failed the entire public at large. basically taking segments of society and addressing themselves to them. host: this unannounced trip that you just indicated in iraq, these officials with the president on his trip, the associated press pointed out that there were a series of meetings over flights. iran says that this is humanitarian aid and that syria is getting the weapons or else. guest: a whole concern, as the israelis feel that regardless of everything going on, they look to the north and in syria they see it disintegrating. weapons are flowing into the regime of the time. if we discussed the threat to iran stabilizing, weapons would also be a threat to the united states and its interest in the region. host: independent line, florida, welcome to the program. caller: welcom

at the history, was your sense john kennedy enjoyed these conferences? guest: i believe he did. host: let's go to alex in youngstown, ohio. caller: what is his relationship -- [indiscernable] i'm reminded that world war i that wilson got the u.s. involved in is the first war in which mass mobile zation of the public was -- mobilization of the public was manipulated by propaganda. he says "the conscious manipulation of the organized habits of opinions of the masses is an important element. to manipulate this unseen portion of society is the true ruling power of our country." i'm curious what your guest from towson university said. you are not getting more information from the public, you are manipulating the public more. host: thank you for the call. let's go back to her earlier point about how this all came about. because you are talking about the first news conference in 1913. as we said earlier, it was an inauspicious occasion for president wilson. he was asked a question from the new york evening post and he responded that the president replied crisply, politely, and with the fewest possibl

for another 20 years probably. host: how old are you now, john? caller: i'm 47. host: how long do you plan to work for? caller: probably another 20 years. host: roger in north carolina. hi, roger. caller: yes, current law prohibits issuing pension pavements who aren't retire bud the coalition and unions just finished the commission report that recommend to congress that they change that law now retirees can have their benefits cut if this goes through congress, so i think everybody needs to start making some phone calls. host: all right our last phone call. up next we will talk to congressman steve pearce about his outreach to minorities, women and young voters and then we will turn our attention to capitol hill with earl. we'll be right back. >> 34 years ago fay we began providing access to the kong and federal government. the c-span networks created by america's cable companies in 1979 and brought to you as a public service by your cable providers. >> and we can take pictures with m.r.i. or upset scans or c.t. scans and see the whole thing but there's an enormous gap about how the circui

you said. host: it's all right. we will move on to john in florida, and independent there. caller: yes, this is john from saint pete. iraq is doing very well, contrary to popular belief. their government is very much thenced today, with exception of the prime minister, the country has done quite well. even obama said the other day that back in 2002 emma it was a dumb -- it was a dumb war. and now they say it was a highly successful. do you know that the iraqi government is in good shape? caller: because i follow it. i follow it by their newspapers. hello? host: we're listening. caller: i follow their newspapers. of other newspapers that can be translated into the english language. there is a very solid government there. they're fighting for positioning of the oil. they are the number one liters and natural gas. their number two in oil. that is where of the main reasons we went over there. if you recall, we would integrate -- we went into kuwait to kick saddam hussein out of kuwait. during the clinton administration, america brought $11 trillion of kuwait currency. then they revalued th
and another war again. here john is a republican in the suburbs and alexandra, virginia. caller: good morning, thank you for taking my call. in regard to u.s. involvement in the commander testified to the senate last week or two is toogo that it propagated, the situation in we don't terms of truly understand who the resistance is. i heard from folks speaking this one regarding group specifically is in line with u.s. policy or this group is in line with u.s. values. there is no way that anybody could say that and have any degree of confidence or 100% confidence in making that statement. that turned out to be a hoax. unless we have some really solid fidelity as to what we're ,oing and who we are supporting i would say we should not get involved. the second point i would like to make, if we look at u.s. history, the british and french were interested in blake -- breaking the blockade in north and south in the civil war because they were unable to get cotton exports from the south. of whatuick analysis would have happened, but troops in and either tilted the balance in the civil war or even if it
. john is joining us from illinois. republican line. good morning. caller: thank you for taking my call. my comment is about the girl that was killed in that unfortunate incident. from what i understand she was shot to death was sitting in her father's lap. if the politicians want to go after criminals on this type of stuff, this father was a known gang member. does he not have some responsibility, there something in the child's death? i do feel sorry for the family, but it seems to me that they should also be prosecuting him for having a hand in this. host: your part of the country has been hit hard by gun violence. chicago leads the nation, doesn't it? caller: yes, it does. i am a law-abiding gun owners. i have raised my kids properly. but i do not want to see my rights taken away. host: thank you. justin, tennessee, good morning. caller: good morning, sir. how you doing? host: good, thank you. caller: we are talking a lot about guns. with video games we are talking a lot about freedom of speech. these things have been sacrosanct for a long time. what you find when we look at these st
surgeon to separate conjoined twins. he is a johns hopkins hospital neurosurgeon, very successful in his field, and he is going to retire in the next few months. that was already set to happen, and he is a conservative, and so he challenged the president at the prayer breakfast, and he has been very, very good at dishing out the red meat, and the crowd at cpac loved him. he was a very vibrant in his speech to the president, which a lot of the politicians have not really been doing that much now that the election is over, and so, he got a better reception than maybe anybody else, just in terms of an exciting everyone, and so it was notable that in the straw poll he did as well as he did. host: also, sarah palin, the previous nominee, a headline this morning, sarah palin brings down the house at the conference, and she is pictured in newspapers around the country gulp.he big what was that the >> it was a great prop. they were criticizing michael bloomberg, going after the many mentality, as she sees it, and she has had a much lower profile since the election. she is not on television. she
, welcome. john? manchester, new hampshire, independent line. caller: good morning, thank you for taking my call. , thank you foren reporting the facts. i believe almost every person is corruptible. if the media would report the facts, we, the people can make better decisions. -- too many people in [indiscernible] that should be their mission. host: has the story influenced your vote? caller: no, not really. i am a small business owner. so many small businesses have their spouses or relatives there because they can be trusted. i forget who it was that hired both of their daughters because they were cpas or whatever. i would much rather have my niece hannah my money than a stranger. -- handle my money. i think if people had more -- they will be able to make informed decisions. thank you for those thoughts. members of congress have said the same thing. guest: i trust my relatives, i want to have them do this work for me. i think you are right. our job is to write about it. this is why these records are public, and voters and readers can make up their mind about whether they agree or disagree.
that they are committed to. the top rate tax cut. speaker, john the banker? remember him. he has had a tough year with 1 million pounds. what does he get? of 42,000e tax cut pounds next year. half thousand pounds. double the average wage. that are ofe -- little better, bringing home 5 million pounds per year. the prime minister does not like to hear what he agreed to. 250,000t of nearly pounds. and at the same time, everyone else pays the price. the chancellor is giving with one hand and taking far more away with the other. disabled people are hit by the bedlam tax and millions pay more for the millionaires to pay less. the chancellor mentioned child for these 7 billion and offering 700 million pounds. what of the families waiting for the child care. they have to wait over two years, for the help to arrive. for the richest they have to wait two weeks for the millionairess tax cut. that is the britain of david cameron. the primerse, still, minister refuses to tell us, about whether he is getting the tax cut. getting embarrassed now, he has had a year to think about this, he must have done the math. so, c

and john kasich, so they have problems. in terms of 2016, this is going to be the first open election on both sides since 2008. i expect we will have a large field of candidates. there's no question that if hillary tosses herself into the ring, she will be a phenomenal candidate. there is a poll out today that she beats both jeb bush and marco rubio by double digits. joe biden will be a strong candidate. we have an enormous number of good governors across the country, martin o'malley, governor cuomo, so i am looking forward to it. >> do you think voters in an aging society -- part of obama's appeal was young and vibrant. does it matter? [indiscernible] >> i think presidential politics is very generational. when the country moves to a next generation of leadership, they very rarely reach back and bring in an older generation. to a certain extent that was a factor for senator mccain in running against obama and partly a factor in romney running against obama, and that is an interesting dynamic for the two most likely nominees who will be older on the democratic side. if you look at our
worked for the presidential campaign for senator john mccain. what i learned is with if you take the words campaign finance reform, you can take the most hypercaffeinated politically obsessed in the world and put them to sleep. we learned the word redistricting is the way to accomplish the same thing. this is not the kind of thing that voters wake up thinking about. they think about their hildren's schools jobs, how do you get people -- how do you get voters to focus on something that sounds like inside baseball but has the affect that senator daschle is talking about? >> one way is to let everything go to hell like it is right now. then people will say how come we're not fixing this? to provide a bookend to focus on campaign money that candidates have to raise, we can focus on what dan mentioned, which is the people's money. congress is responsible for appropriating and spending and budgeting. the government might not be responsible for everything but they are certainly responsible for our money. they make it. they are responsible for a locating for what they collect from taxpay

of the assassination of john f. kennedy. the 9/11 commission stands alone. that report stands alone as the broadest and most objective and complete report that congress could put together, and we have acted and reacted on recommendations from the 9/11 commission. we need to do the same thing with benghazi. if we do not, if we do not, mr. speaker, history will forever question whether there was a cover-up on what happened at benghazi. in fact we already know there has been. we know that the administration went out and sent susan rice out to do the talk shows, knife different -- five different talk shows on sunday several days later to tell us that all of this violence that erupted in the streets of benghazi came about because of a movie, a video that was produced. as far as i know the individual that exercised his freedom of -- first amendment rights to produce that video, may still be in jail. that's the only punishment that's come out that i know of from benghazi. i think he should be released. that's the first story. then we have different stories that were brought out of the administration, prie

john mccain. what i learned is if you take the word campaign finances reform and string them together enough times you can take the most politically obsessed audience in the world and put them to sleep. kind of thingst the that voters wake up and think about. they think about streets and parks. a question for any panelist, how do you get people, voters, to focus on something that sounds like inside baseball, but could have a profound effect that the senator is talking about? >> one way to do is to let everything go to hell, which is happening now, and they can say how come we are not fixing this proved to provide a bookend for the focus on the campaign money that candidates have to raise, we can focus on what dan manchin, people's money, that congress is responsible for appropriating and budgeting. the government might not be responsible for everything, but they are certainly responsible for our money, and they are responsible for allocating what they collect from taxpayers. as the secretary general has said, rationing is a painful thing that puts everything out, the process can help.

about kelly ayotte and how she's been involved. they are the three amigos, john mccain, lindsey graham and joe lieberman, when joe lieberman retired, they were in search of a third amiga and they found kelly ayotte, someone who is very articulate, who has a legal history and is obviously someone who's a tougher lawmaker who's really sort of latched on to these issues and made them her own. i don't know exactly what she's planning to do with that, but it's interesting to watch because it's automatically given her a platform on issues that clearly get talked about. i think that's one of the most important things about women being involved in this committee. we always talk about these issues. host: we're talking about the female senators that sit on the senate armed services committee, the impact it's having on military issues. here is kelly ayotte during the committee vote on the nomination of chuck hagel to become defense secretary. >> this nomination in a very different place. i very much agree with my colleague, senator reed, who is here as he describes the state of our country and ou

into custody by a u.s. naval vessel. the trial is a famous one. john quincy adams represented the mutineers arguing for their relief. what thesting piece is crew of the naval vessel to capture the ship argued. they argued they were entitled and under laws of to salvagethe law provides that the discoverer of a salvage vessel are entitled to all of its cargo, typically treasure. in this case, a human cargo. been able crew argued that they were entitled to ownership -- the naval crew argued that they were entitled to ownership. how is this different from the passengers on horton's speck of dust? horton faces the peril of that. own the common law and our disability faces and owners position of wrongfully taken property. it is for that reason we feel the winter ckersham brothers come. here the reader or young listener becomes a implicit in his ownership claim. he is no longer the subjugate year of an independent people, they he is the victim of simple property that. then a great transformation in the narrative occurs. vladikoff drops the clover into a field. he makes it hard to find. vows to rec
's important that we make sure that we sustain this through the fighting season. over. >> hi, general. john harper. what would you estimate the size of the insurgency to be at this point? and how many insurgents have laid down their arms and gone through the formal reintegration process? on that latter point, plus-5,000 have formally entered the re-integration process. and it's very difficult to put a head count on how large the insurgency is. not least because i think it's always quite difficult to be clear about who the enemy always is. i mean, i always use the term insurgency and i use that in a very precise term because an insurgent is somebody who wishes to knock over the government. there are a lot of other people who may well be involved in criminality or furthering their own economic or political agendas who might not wish to upset the government and therefore be formally described as insurgents. so i think how you categorize who the enemy is is very much determined by motivation and i think it's a point that we need to keep focusing on as we try and understand the political dynamic
